  5. To add files you’d like to include in your document, click "Add Files...", then select "Add Files..." again. You can add files from most Microsoft programs, PDFs, and most types of images.
    • Tip! You can also add all the files in a single folder by selectinguc "Add Folder...", instead of “Add Files…”.
  6. A new window will open, allowing you to browser for your files.
    1. To select a single file, simply click on it once and click “Open”.
    2. To select multiple files, hold down the Ctrl key while you click, then click "Open".
  7. Once you add your files, they will be listed with their file names and additional information.
    1. You can rearrange the order of these files by selecting the file in the list and clicking "Move Up" or "Move Down".
    2. To remove a file from the list, click "Remove".
  8. When you are ready to create your new PDF, click "Convert".
  9. A new window will open asking you where to save your PDF and what you’d like to name it. After you have chosen where to save your file and what to name it, click “Save”.
  10. A status bar will open, to indicate the progress of the PDF.

Once your PDF is finished, the Convert window will remain open.  You can continue to create additional PDFs by adding or removing files, or you can simply close the window and enjoy your new PDF.
